Alliance unveils next-gen LPWAN for smart cities and industrial IoT


The MIOTY Alliance has launched the software-based MIOTY technology in Germany.

MIOTY is an ETSI-compliant Massive IoT protocol to overcome the limitations of common LPWAN solutions, according to a statement.

The MIOTY protocol is hardware-independent and with its telegram splitting technology, brings a breakthrough in scalability, reliability, mobility, energy efficiency and flexibility.

MIOTY aggregates millions of messages a day with a single base station, achieves an unmatched interference immunity and transmits data with ultra-low power consumption.

The IoT solution is leveraged in Industrial IoT or smart cities, which need data transfer over 15 kilometers and data collection from moving devices at 120 km/h velocity.

“Reliable data transfer, low power and long-range networks are essential to creating industrial IoT applications at scale. The MIOTY standard provides these components and the performance to secure its position as the leading connectivity option for worldwide Sub-1 GHz communication now and in the future,” said Mattias Lange, general manager of Connectivity at TI.

 “Taking the needs of manufacturers and end customers seriously, we are proud to ensure worldwide interoperability along the entire value chain through standardization and certification programs,” states Hermann Trottler, Chairman of the MIOTY Alliance Executive Board.

Members of MIOTY Alliance include Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS and Diehl Metering.
